Shanai E

I fell in love with Barre in my first practice, exactly the same way I fell in love first with yoga, and then with hot yoga. I knew I would be practicing it for the rest of my days. Being a yoga practitioner for over a decade, an instructor since 2014, and a big fan of dance, I was so excited to have found Barre that complemented my practice in every way. I love that Barre is more than just a workout and helps cultivate a mind body connection like yoga does while working every single muscle in my body. I believe in the transformational powers of Barre and Yoga wholeheartedly and am very passionate about sharing all the benefits. Seeing my students grow in their own practice is the most rewarding thing.

After a BA in Literature; Philosophy and Language Studies in Europe; some corporate work history; lots of traveling; and training in filmmaking and acting, I am happy that I found my way to LA and am excited to be a part of the Hot 8 Yoga community.
